Targus’ Ultra Mini USB 2.0 4-port hub is meant for travel – even though we also use them on our MacBook Pros while at our desks. Some of our MacBook Pros are even using two of these hubs simultaneously without issue.
MacBook Air owners take note. It allows you to connect 4 USB devices to your notebook simultaneously. It has a transfer rate of 480 Mbps, plug and play capabilities, and does not require an AC adapter. Compact, affordable and easy to use, this hub is perfect for the traveler on the go who doesn’t want to sacrifice the convenience of external peripherals.
Now, it only comes in the blue color pictured (we can live with it; it reminds us of the old iMacs), but it is very small and light at just 3.67″ x 0.86″ x 0.74″ and 1.1 oz. It works with Mac OS X right out of the box.
One nice touch is that the USB plug has a little round plastic nub which snaps into the blue hub’s bottom for easy packing.
The Targus Ultra Mini USB 2.0 4-port hub retails for US$19.99.
